Facebook is one of the dominating social media apps among users. Facebook allows users to chat with individuals and groups as well. The best part of Facebook Groups is that you can either maintain it as a Public group or a Private one. But sometimes, the Facebook Group admin may get frustrated due to the people’s inactivity. On the other hand, there are some groups that are no longer active on Facebook. If you feel that the Facebook group is no longer needed, you can delete the group on your smartphone or PC.

Remember that you can delete the group only when you are an admin. Also, the steps to delete private and public groups vary.
